Not really. He really did nothing. Actually he probably gained some votes for his attempt for reelection....but really didnt do anything to deserve any credit, George Bush deserves more credit than he does,but then again he deserves credit for getting the US involved in the 1st place

No. Bush made things dramatically worse.

1) He took his eye off of Bin Laden to launch a misguided adventure in Iraq, letting our number one target get away. How long do you think it would have taken to get Bin Laden if we'd focused all the military and intell resources that we wasted in Iraq on getting his terrorist ass?

2) He mishandled relations with Afghanistan and Pakistan both -- far too deferential. No way Bush goes into Pakistan without their permission.

3) Obama said he'd get Bin Laden and that he'd launch ops in Pakistan whether they liked it or not. He promised that, and now it's done. No fanfare. No chest-pounding. And most importantly: No "mission accomplished."

George Bush had the IQ of a turnip. The only idea he ever had was to bomb things, under the theory that if you drop bombs, you'll kill some bad guys.

Obama paid attention to the intelligence, UNDERSTOOD the updates he received on the situation, and responded with a strategic solution. I don't love Obama. I have problems with a number of things he's done. But I'm quite able to believe he was smart enough to solve the Osama bin Laden problem whereas GWB was simply too stupid.

The term "stupid" may encompass more than you intend.

Really? I don't know of any real subtle meanings of the word "stupid."

I think you intended a clever insult, but it doesn't quite work. You seem to think I inadvertently included myself in "stupid," but what I said was that GWB is stupid. Last time I checked, I'm not GWB. Does it all make sense to you now or shall I explain it more simply?

Nah, I didn't think you inadvertently included yourself, I did that for you. Simple is right up your alley.

No, you really didn't "include" me in anything, and the word "stupid" does not "encompass more than I intend," but you seem to have trouble following your own posts, let alone other people's.

George Bush had 8 years to get Osama; it didn't work out for him. Remember his expression on 9/11, looking up from the children's book he was having trouble reading to some school children that morning? That's pretty much how it was for 8 years. Took the next guy to put the pieces together and come up with a plan. Years of torturing detainees won't help if you can't even understand the information the detainees are giving you. That's the sad story of the Bush years.

Yes! exactly :)

Like I said, I truly do not love everything Obama has done. But I'm not above enjoying the past few days in this regard. I thought releasing the birth certificate was a mistake, at the time - thought he shouldn't stoop to the level of the idiots chanting Give Us a Birth Certificate. But, in the context of the events of the next few days, the decision to release it makes more sense. It was a sort of double-barreled statement over the course of several days, "You want my birth certificate? Oh, okay, silly but here you go. Maybe you'd like my mummy's Baby Book also, and a lock of my hair? Oh, and I've just killed Osama bin Laden. You were busy making asses of yourselves poring over the records of some hospital in Hawaii from the 1960s, while I pored over intelligence reports from Pakistan, nailing bin Laden."
Hello 2012.

Bush would have kept the body on ice until 2012, and then released the news in late October.
